is the top law enforcement officer and also responsible for handling domestic violence programs within the county. now the commission believed -- the majority believed that while there was some room for debate as to whether this conduct or decency clause is limited by the relations to the duties clause, they found that it didn't matter. ultimately whether or not the decency clause is related to the duties of office in this case official misconduct had been shown. now, i've looked at this charter provision quite a bit so when i say things like conduct, clause, and decency clause, they mean something. perhaps -- not sure how much you all have looked at it. so i am going to borrow a definition that the parties ultimately agreed to, and this is a handout actually that i believe the mayor may have created. so this is the language of 15105e, but broken down in a way to identify theirs clauses within that section. it reads, official misconduct means any wrongful behavior by a public officer in relation to the duties of his or her office, wilful in its character including -- in the actual prov

misdemeanor conviction relates to the duties of the sheriff as a law enforcement officer. >> supervisor kim: so then you're adding to the test then the second portion of your test would be a relationship test, plus the ethics commission would have to determine that it falls below the standard of decency for that office. >in relationship to the sheriff's office, but if we were to assume that it is standards in relationship to your specific office, for the sheriff, it would be the relationship to his office, plus the -- what common sense would judge as falling before the standard of decency? this is where i get stuck is when does it fall below the standard of decency? a dui could be -- as a misdemeanor. you didn't hurt anyone per se, but you could have. you could have killed someone on the road, right? so i guess that's where i would like more clarity. when does it fall below the standard of decency for the sheriff, if we were to argue that there are standards? >> well, the mayor submitted the testimony of an expert, this person was the chief -- is william -- the chief of police of the san di

law and theory as to freedom of action versus freedom of choice, i think it it actually is quite compatible across both if we simply separate what it is we're talking about, a difference between your preferences and desires over which you may not have control versus action choices and in law, we punish you for bad actions, not for bad preferences and desires. so then the question is, how do we take account for preferences and desires that may be outside of your control? that may be things like gray matter lighten kent showed us that showed us that people like psychopaths have decreased gray matter in particular regions of their brain. it could be something like the guy who he was talking about out of virginia who had the large tumor in his brain and chose to act on but didn't have control over having the tumor in his brain. how do we take account for that in law? that's, i think, the interesting struggle that neuroscience presents us with, but it doesn't change the issue of free will. in fact, we have just as robust of evidence from neuroscience that supports this concept of acti
their charges, a law enforcement official, or a public official could rob banks on their way to their inauguration, and there's nothing that anybody could do about it. well, there's a couple of points that i'd like to make about that. number one is the charter of san francisco, while an admirable document, is not perfect. in fact, there's no provision in the charter that permits anyone to remove the mayor for official misconduct. the only way a mayor can be removed is by recall, or defeat in the next election. so the mayor could commit a first degree murder, and not be removable, unless the voters decide to take matters into their own hand and remove him. the mayor has also made the argument that this removal provision,ka@u 15.105, is a valuable, speedy and effective tool. and they want you to do the work, that the voters might have to do if they were to decide to launch a recall election. well the voters have decided to launch a recall election, thateÑ issue would be decided next month. so their argument that this is procedure is not borne out byk5p the facts and the length
on together but he proactively came for this bill, s.b. 1506, to say that he's been law enforcement for 30 years and bring back 30-year experience to this consideration of this bill, and he said this bill makes sense because drug treatment works and this is in spite of the fact we'll be battling the district attorneys along with many other arms of public safety. [laughter] >> we've got the data, we've got the facts and we know this will provide great benefit to our communities, to our neighborhoods, and to all of california. thank you for your support. [applause] >> tal, i want to go back to the question that marty posed earlier, which is in effect this idea that in order to incentivize people making the decision to seek treatment that the fear of a felony conviction or possible state prison sentence could play a positive role. you talk to a lot of people charged with crimes who are trying to make the decision of what decision to make, what is the primary motivation you see coming from them. how do they decision make on dispositions related to drug possession as a felony? >> i think that f
look at all of the policy concerns, and the case law, it becomes clear that it makes no sense whatsoever to draw the line at the oath of office rather than at the election. it would be contrary to the voter's intent to enhance the ethical responsibilities of their public officials and hold them accountable to imply this two month free zone in between the election and taking the oath of office, where that elected official could do whatever he wanted with no consequences with his public position, until that moment when he walks up to the lectern and raises his hand. it also would lead to absurd results. an elected official could, for example, commit domestic violence on tuesday, and be safe from any official consequences. but if the oath of office is later that day, he couldn't do the same thing on wednesday. that's a completely arbitrary line. it makes no sense whatsoever. it's very different if you draw the line at the election. that makes perfect sense. once an official has been granted the voters trust, then he also has the ethical obligation to protect that trust by not com
's panel will have a debate about a proposed law that would reduce felony drug possession crimes to a misdemeanor. this is what 13 states have done. we not only bring these issues to the forefront, but have the opportunity to participate -- and we have cards that you could fill out and questions. this promises to be a year of reform and change like we have never seen, and we now see prisoner reentry programs being implemented. we're still spending too much money and resources and not enough on rehabilitation and reentry. this november, the voters will decide on limiting the three strikes law. issues and measures long overdue. it is clear there is much more that needs to be done. according to a study that was published this month -- since 1989, 2000 people have been wrongfully incarcerated and they served collectively, 10,000 years. an average of 11 years person. i would like to thank the people who made this summit possible. memoranda -- amy devon -- many volunteers and all of our speakers and panelists. i would like to thank the co- sponsors, and the bar association of san franc
that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted construct from a legal perspective. it could be competency to be executed, it could be competency to commit a crime. it could be competency to contribute to the decision as to whether voluntarily commit yourself to a mental hospital. it could be competency to participate in an abortion decision. so competency means many different things. the first thing you have to do as a scientist is ask the question, well, what does the law mean by it because if you want me to measure it, i have to somehow apply it. so going back to the question of free will, because a scientist can't operationally define it, they can't measure it, they're not really that much use to legal debates about free will. now, what does it mean on the legal side? i actually think the idea of free will or what is often referred to as volitional control plays a very big part in legal systems, but i think in the legal systems, we don't
carefully. the language that defines official misconduct as bad conduct that violates laws related to a particular office or to all public offices. a charge of official misconduct must logically contain a description of a particular conduct or behavior, and a reference to an ethics or conflict of interest law. it is clear that no evidence has been presented that the sheriff's behavior is official misconduct. look at the mayor's charges, amended charges, brief, or whatever document you wish. listen to the endless drama of commission hearings. there are no charges of official misconduct. there is no action paired with citation of relevant law that has been broken. charges of official misconduct are the emperor's new clothes. >> president chiu: next speaker. >> hi. my name's teresa cooper. and i worked on ross' campaign. and it really hurts my heart to see what's going on in my city. i've never supported anyone in this city, never got involved in politics. but i felt ross was right. and i went with that as a healer. i was one of the best ones at rubberbanding, okay. i've really truste
, the former federal prosecutor and kelly stand on, a constitutional law attorney. welcome to you both. fred, i'm going to start with you. you might tink that the court should rule in favor of the university of texas, which is fighting to keep these racial preferences. why is that? >> well, i'm not advocating one decision or another. if you look at supreme court questioning going back to 2000 and three race can be a factor in determining admission. in this case, i thinkfor the university of texas, the majority of the students at the university of texas at intercampus if they are in the top 10% of their graduating class because of the way that the schools are set up. that leads to diversity. gerri: okay, all right, maybe. let's talk to kelly. you just said that justice should be blind and there may be more effective ways of getting some balance and student body than having the government come in and order that it do so. how is that? >> well, you know there are scenes that are considered socioeconomic. therefore, they are in different schools and university of texas has advocated that this is to
here and for better or worse, in law units are a vital component of the neighborhoods and by fiat the cities if they wanted to could simply order the eviction of everyone in an illegal unit at a date certain. but it doesn't do that. with benign neglect most tenants are left alone to live in so-called illegal units indefinitely and those are subject to lease agreements that are enforcible by law. in this case, again, there's been no health code violation or any other violation or even inspection by the building inspector that would suggest there's anything about my unit that is a blight on the city or something to be removed, certainly not on a timetable that would just by a day or even a fraction of a day happen to prevent me from getting at least the relocation benefits i would otherwise have qualified for. i think a fair reflection of the city charter would be to balance the rights between the ability to remove illegal units when they are egregious violations, safety violations putting peoplality risk, and when they are not. and also a way of balancing the concerns about hous
to the domestic workers i am an attorney who helps workers, and enforce their rights on the federal and state law and i think that it is important that those rights be respected. he posed the question to the authors of that law in vetoing it as to what is the impact going to be on some of the elderly and the sick who rely on home care workers in particular, and i guess the governor, a democrat found that legislation to be too broad, too enerous and em posing more requirements on the small businesses than was necessary and asked that a more tailored and more appropriate set of legislation come back to him on that subject and i would agree with that. >> mr. leno. >> i supported both of those bills with regard to the domestic workers' rights bill. we heard so many horror stories in the committee hearings. if you could imagine being in the employment and not being able to take the kinds of breaks for meals and for rest, even to have an 8-hour workday, it is a different kind of employment, so it is not as easily tailored to the kind of worker protection rights that we expect in every other industry. s

constitutional law. the question i ask is, why is low i.q. an excusing condition from the death penalty? if you go back to atkins and read the opinion, it's on the basis of an eighth amendment analysis of the twin pillars of the criminal law which are retribution and deterrence. the court makes the judgment that low i.q. means that you're less responsible and less likely able to be deterred. so the twin pillars of the criminal law don't really apply. but i'm not sure that the psychologists who do psychological testing and i.q. or the neuroscientists have really connected up the constitutional reasons why because it may be that they're substructures of i.q. that are more relevant to the eighth amendment question. it's not a general i.q. score that is ultimately relevant. in fact, the california supreme court has dealt with exactly that question of what subscales might be constitutional relevant rather than the global i.q. score. >> one question here which i think is very interesting. in my community, we strongly feel that diet plays a strong diagnosis of the violence we see, the intake of sugar

point it will go too far. some of these are laws written in basel. they are written for other people and other purposes. they say we have to have a common ground and make it fair for everyone. i agree with that concept except that it's bad for america. if we're not going to do it, the rest of the world cannot make us. >> what about the poster issue of proprietary trading, the volcker rule, all of that? where did you come out on that? >> after dodd-frank, the blueprint, the white paper, and never went through in their two cents, i would argue that was completely unnecessary. it was not the problem. we supported a lot of dodd- frank. you are either for or against it. there are like 2000 things in dodd-frank. the volcker rule had anything to do with the crisis. it is something that he felt deeply about. keep trading safe for big financial companies? i agree. we need to get rid of too big to fail. i agree with the intent. we do not do any crop trading. we have the widest, deepest, most transparent capital market in the world. that's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. the struggle
attorney general to go after morgan now. >> he enforces the law. if bear stearns committed fraud, that needs, he pursues that. whoever currently owns bear stearns will be on the other end of that enforcement action. i have said generally that i do think enforcement should pu more focus on suing individuals imposing individual accountability, going after personal assets putting people in jail where appropriate. i know those cases are harder to prove but think from the standpoint of discouraging future risk-taking punishing this havior and making sure it doesn't happen again, if you impose persona accountability you will get a lot more bang f the enforcement buck. if you take action against the corporation, the corporation will pay for it, the individual doesn't. melissa: you said to lou bbs we propped up banks instead of fixing the financial system. what do you mean by that. >> i think in 2009 we did have a stable financial system and that we could have, very sick institutions like citi should have been restructured. all banks should have been required to shed their bed assets, cl

for the traffickers be increased and be registered for sex offenders and training be provided for law enforcement officers. i am curious, what is your position on this? >> i support that. i think that obviously, trafficking is a horrific occurrence that happens in areas around the world and it is something that we certainly should have a very strong stand on. and so i think that we absolutely should support that proposition completely. >> thank you. >> mr. chang?mr. king. >> that was one of the issues that we worked on, many of the women who are in san francisco get trafficked from asia and so this is something that is a very serious issue that we need to take it and create greater enforcement and we have received a time and worked with non-profits in a coalition to make sure that the city and the law enforcement and the da and the local police department actually took much more greater, aggressiveness towards this issue, twiet often, this is happening in your neighborhood, this is happening down the street from your office, this is not something that is happening in some other part of the world.
for various types of reforms for the drug laws and drug enforcement. i think that the -- one of the contexts that's so important here and people so often lose sight of is that this bill, 1506, is a small effort in the state of california and in the country of the united states to try to roll back the horrendous rates of incarceration that have happened in this country over the last 30 years. i mean, that's the context, right? the united states, i think most of you know these numbers now, but we're less than 5% of the world's population but almost 25% of the world's incarcerated population. we rank first in the world in the per capita incarceration of our fellow citizens. the russians are fading fast in second or third place together with the belarus people. the rates of the incarceration are five, six, seven, eight times than most in other societies, europe and elsewhere, though their rates of nonviolent crime and drug use are not that much different than ours. so if another country were to lock up its own people at the rate that we do, and if our rates of incarceration were more normative t
under san francisco's][e&- official misconduct law. at least if the official has limited experience playing the six degrees of kevin bacon does the mayor say any and all misconduct will result in someone being put on probation, even purely personal conduct totally unrelated to the performance of any of the official's actual duties? if so are ethics commissioners studley and han saying anything different from what commissioner rene said. is their new relationship requirements so diluted that it amounts to no requirements at all, exactly what mr. rene suggested. and if that is correct, does it not follow that all four commissioners are interpreting san francisco's official misconduct statute in a way that leaves it completely unconstitutionally vague. by making up rules of misconduct proceedings against ross as they went along, the ethics commission appears to have vield the city charter themselves by chersing an authority not;%.f-3 granted by the charter. they do not have my authority to take away my vote. reinstate -state wúw wj4(p&c"p% >> president chiu: thank you very much. next
on the political trail than it was about getting answers. it kind of seemed a little bit more like "l.a. law" than it did a hearing, an investigation, but i do think there were important things that came out yesterday. namely, eric nordstrom, the top u.s. security official in libya months before the attack had asked the state department for additional security. those requests were denied. and the state department official who actually handled those requests, charlene lamb, said that she did. and i think another thing that came out that was kind of interesting is that even as the republicans were charging that there wasn't enough security at the post, democrats did make an interesting point that under the house-controlled congress, there was, under republican controlled congress, sorry, there was a lot of budget cuts in the state department and embassy security. >> why she -- glad you brought that up. yesterday, serious accusations about not having enough assets and resources in place to protect our people. soledad o'brien asked right here on cnn, didn't you vote to cut the funding for embassy secu
's office, we believe we are in complete compliance with the charter and the law. the path-through, the earmark like we have for the police department, the municipal earmark from the charter goes directly to the san francisco symphony in it's entirety resulting in 12 community events, symphony events including dolores park and other parts of the city. and the gift that is received by the arts commission from the san francisco symphony is in compliance with the admin code or the arts commission's ability to accept gifts under 5.100 of the city charter. so and it's our feeling that that is a great partnership and it is the gift is greatly valued and supports our general fund program including community education in our grants program so the arts commission is very grateful and we believe based on the city attorney's advisement that we are in compliance with the charter and with the law on that. >> we can certainly ask the city attorney about that if we want to in a bit. so they submit back 40% i know it's not necessarily the same pool of money. i guess the response is if they
